    What wonderful vibes I received on my first visit to the Kfar Shmaryahu Social Club and what a welcome they provided even though I had arrived unannounced to join in one of their regular Monday evening get-togethers.

    When they started around 15 years ago, the group members were in their teens - now they have become a close-knit unit of young adults who simply enjoy each other's company.

    ESRA's ETP (English Tutoring Program) is one of the most important and far reaching of the projects in ESRA. Israeli kids are hungry to learn the English language but with 30-40 children in a class, it is almost impossible for any teacher to give a student the one-on-one help that is so badly needed. This is where ESRA comes in.
